Great mid-size SUV
Bought this vehicle as a replacement for Mercedes 350e. Has the features of the Mercedes and in addition the Inscription model which I purchased offered heated seats and steering wheel.
Purchased in May 2021 for $57,500.00.
Stay away from Volvo XC40 - false advertisement and false marketing
I have written this review to let people out there think twice before purchasing this car.
Breakdown at 7,000 km (engine oil leakage and complete breakdown of engine) I don’t think I need to explain how bad this is for a car engine, one would expect to see such a thing in 200,000+km if at all.
Vibration at 90km/h and above(similar to Andy’s comment below and many other reviews you can find on Google. The interesting part is that Volvo never admitted the issue exist despite so many complains.
The worst part is that there are people from the se...
Purchased at Barbagallo.
I bought the top of the line fully optioned model.
Coming up to 60000 km.
I have had to have rear brake pads replaced. Volvo wanted to replace rotors and pads for $750.
I went elsewhere and had rotors ground and pads replaced for $310.
60000 km service quote $870 approx.
New Tyres $1800. I did get 55000 km out of original tyres though.
Love the colour. Thunder Grey...
Purchased in December 2019.

- XC40 T4 Inscription (2018-2021)
Fantastic Car - more than met my expectations and the team at Volvo Lindfield were terrific.
The technology in this car is state of the art & very easy to use. The touch screen is clear & large enough to see what is going on at a glance. The adaptive cruise control and pilot assist are very good functions & I like using the self parking option. I use the car mostly for Sydney driving but occasionally run up or down the coast on weekends. I personally won't ever test the 'all wheel drive' off road so can't comment on this. The visibility is very good facing forward and the car feels very spacious. You can sit quite high in this car com...pared to other similar sized SUVs - I'm averaging 9 litres Per/100kms for fuel consumption. Special thank you to my sales consultant Loic Le Gallou from Volvo Lindfield who really knows what he is selling and took the time to show us the difference between Momentum & Inscription. Special thank you too for Loic's colleague Lee who did a very informative handover of the keys & demonstrated the technology of the car before we drove off. Very impressive team at Volvo Lindfield and William for finance was very organised - so far the car is exceptional and the heated seats and general comfort of the seats are particular stand outs for my girlfriend & I - I kept the standard sound system for my XC40 and it's more than good enough. I opted for no sunroof so can't comment on the Harmon Karmon sound upgrade or sunroof functionality. So far I can't fault this car & I honestly thought I would miss my Porsche a lot as a first time Volvo buyer - zero regrets! Thank you Loic Le Gallou & team.
Purchased in April 2019 for $60,950.00.
